About Mila Holt

Mila and Tyler have four kids. We just purchased this home as a vacation spot for our family and we are eager to share it with you when we are not using it. We are TV producers in the Bay Area, doing shows mainly for HGTV. Mila has always imagined creating a fun rental experience for guests, so she is excited to try her hand at it and wants to know the minute a guest thinks something could be improved! We are fun-loving creative types who like to decorate.

Mila Holt purchased this house in 2013

Why Mila Holt chose St Helena

We made a bid on this house immediately after touring it because it is unique in its beauty, charm and design. We can't take much credit; the previous owners just had awesome taste! They remodeled the house about 5 years ago, creating the most restful spa in the backyard. Everything is so well thought out. There are endless ways to enjoy the home, and all of it is uncluttered yet cozy, serene and luxurious. You can park your car and not use it for days if you want, or tour the valley from this very central location. The Wine Country is truly one of the most beautiful places in the United States, and the variety of great eating, drinking, hiking, and biking experiences that await you is unmatched. It changes with every season!

What makes this house unique

When you open the three huge french doors that face onto the pool, turn on the slow-moving overhead fans, and plug in your Ipod to our whole-house sound system, you will know why we love this home. The neutral colors of the walls are soothing, and the light pours in through the huge, steel windows. Outdoors, there is a veggie garden, from which you can usually pick limes or tomatoes or herbs. At night, the outdoor lighting creates a magical environment for al fresco dining or wine tasting with friends. Set out the candles and relax!

A great place to stay in the heart of the Napa Valley

  • 5 of 5
Dear Mila:

We had a lovely stay at your house last August with our family and friends. Everything within your house made our stay extremely enjoyable. Bedrooms are spacious and furnished with very comfortable beds. The house is decorated with a lot of taste. The kitchen is functional and totally adapted to amateur chefs. Appreciated the super sharp kitchen knives. All in the house looks brand new. The garden with its swimming pool and hot tub are a perfect place to relax, have dinner and enjoy good Californian wines. Especially enjoyable is your pool which dimensions allows swimming laps, not to mention the hot tub perfect to relax after winery visits. Overall a great place to stay in St. Helena, in the heart of the Napa Valley. We highly recommend it
to anyone wanting to partake in style, in the beautiful way of life the Napa Valley has to offer.

Surely a place where we will be back.

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5
My cousins and I just returned from a fantastic holiday in this beautiful home. Every aspect of the home was considered. The pool was pristine, with comfortable lounge chairs and umbrella's for relief from the warm California sun. The hot tub was a perfect spot to relax in the evening and to enjoy the quiet of the neighborhood and the millions of stars above. Although we certainly enjoyed wine tours, and bike tours, we made sure we had plenty of time to lounge by the pool and simply relax together. We had beautiful weather so we were outside in the back yard most of our time there.

The house itself was very clean and offered us every comfort. There were three bedrooms so each of us had our own space and our own bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and rooms were spacious enough for all of our luggage and of course shopping.

The kitchen had everything we needed, there was a large eating area and a very comfortable family room. The house had beautiful details with great books on the shelves and art on the walls. You really felt like you were home.

This house is within walking distance of main street - which can provide an entire day of exploring and . . . eating! The house is nestled in a quiet neighborhood with well manicured yards filled with beautiful flowers. Wonderful to walk through.

The owners were welcoming and easy to communicate with. We found the house easily on our drive in from San Francisco and did not have any trouble getting into the house for our time there.

I would highly recommend this house for your families vacation. Good value for your money too! It really was perfect! Thanks so much - I sure hope to come back some day!

Owner's Response: It was very fun having you at the house for your family month. You were funny and charming throughout. I know this was a special vacation and that you wanted to ride bikes, lay by a pool, experience wineries and our lovely summer weather. It's really nice to hear that everything met your expectations!

Perfect Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5
I was there this summer with 2 other couples and enjoyed this house immensely. It can be quite hot in California, but that pool was so lovely that we spent a few afternoons just sitting beside it and relaxing instead of exploring. In fact we cancelled our spa reservations in order to sit by the pool. Our bedroom was so comfortable and the shower amazing with just perfect water pressure. It was also a steam shower so it already felt like a spa. This house looks like a designer show room with all kinds of lovely touches like interesting coffee table books to read and a stand full of umbrellas in case it rains (which it didn't). The owners thought of everything and were always available via text to answer any questions we had. It is close to Main street but not so close that it is noisy. Every morning I would walk out the front door a couple of blocks to the local coffee shop and bring home a latte to enjoy under the pergola. The walk through this residential area is beautiful and I took many pictures of the gorgeous flowers blooming in the front yards. It was idyllic. The rooms are quite private as well , each had its own bathroom which is great when you are sharing the house with 2 other couples. I won't forget this holiday. It was perfect and I hope to be back.

A little gem in a walk-to-everything location

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a perfect pied-à-terre in St. Helena, this is it. Newly renovated and fresh as a daisy, this 3 Bedroom has new floors, nice bathrooms, a good-sized kitchen, modern decor, and two fireplaces - one is a "flip the switch" gas FP in the back family room overlooking the beautifully landscaped yard, pool and spa area - great for chilling out on chilly evenings without lifting a finger (well just one!). Walk to Roasters or Model Bakery every morning for your coffee or tea, walk home from Cameo theater, Cook, Market, French Blue, or any number of fabulous restaurants in downtown St. Helena - not to mention the shops. Perfect for a small family, 2 couples, or just yourselves. We are veterans of the area, have been coming to Napa Valley for over 20 years, and this one is a find. We stayed more than a month, and plan to return. Mila and Tyler are terrific hosts and the other neighbors we met are wonderful too. A truly comfortable, delightful spot for however long you can stay. A gem!!

Owner's Response: Diane, I cannot tell you how pleased I am that you had a lovely vacation. Five weeks is a long time, and I have to admit I felt a bit of pressure because I knew you had enjoyed other homes during your visits to St. Helena. I wanted ours to be just as good for you (better! :)). It is wonderful to have a renter in our home who seems so great. By the way, you may not know this, but the third bed/bath suite currently set up with twin beds turns into a wonderful king suite as well, so the home is perfect for three couples, each with their own bathroom. Thanks for your kind words, your responsible stewardship of our house, and for our fun email exchanges. I really hope to meet you next time! Best, Mila

Cozy…feels new…and a great location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently stayed with friends at this place. It's in a wonderful location... close to what we wanted to do. The house looks better than the pictures: open... yet private. We walked into town for our coffee and bagels each morning. Then it was on to restaurants and tasting rooms and vineyards, all within a few blocks. Finally, we turned on the fire and enjoyed the living room at night. Quick dip in the hot tub was great too . Sweet neighborhood. Owners were very cooperative.

Bliss out in St. Helena

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a delightfully relaxing and fun-filled weekend with another couple at this lovely home within walking distance of downtown St. Helena. The home is located in a residential neighborhood (so we felt like locals), tasteful, and inviting, and could easily have accommodated an additional 2-4 guests. We hung out in the backyard hot tub and pool, sampled the local coffee shops and restaurants, and strolled the neighboring vineyards. Yountville and its selection of world class restaurants is close by, as are hikes in the picturesque hills. There was even a film festival going on in town. One could easily spend an entire week here and try a new activity everyday while still feeling completely relaxed and at home, but we only had a weekend! We'll definitely be back!
This home will appeal to a wide variety of guests--couples, families, "girls' weekend away," wedding party, etc. The property is extremely well maintained and the hosts are very attentive to guests' needs.
